The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has impounded 92 motorcycles and tricycles in Enugu State for riding without licenses and number plates.
Nigeria News Agency reports that the arrests were part of FRSC activities toward ensuring that tricycles and motorcycles complied with having the appropriate licences and number plates throughout the nation.
The FRSC Enugu State Sector Commander, Mr Ogbonnaya Kalu, disclosed this to NAN on Tuesday in Enugu.
Kalu noted that the tricycles and motorcycles were arrested between Oct. 2, and Oct. 13, in various parts of the state.
According to him, we have a breakdown of 62 motorcycles and 30 tricycles impounded so far.
“They committed a total of 92 offences, which mainly bother on riding without licences and number plates.
“The riding without number plates offences are 83 and riding without licences offences are nine,’’ he said.
The sector commander advised tricycle riders, popularly known as `Keke NAPEP’, and the motorcycle riders also known as `Okada’ to adhere to Federal Government’s law on requirements for their operation.
He explained that the measure was for the good of all.
Kalu noted that going through the normal and required registration process for the licence and number plate help to enhance security and identification within the state and the country at large.
“The drivers licence is also a detailed card that contains information about the rider that can be handy and very helpful during emergencies, safety and medicare.
“It contains the blood group of the driver/rider, name and number of his/her next of kin, age and other vital information that will guide any person helping out in a difficult situation,’’ he said.
He also noted that going through the normal process of acquiring drivers licence and number plates as well as the minimum training required would help create discipline on the road.
“Since the driver or rider must have learnt and be certified by a driving school,’’ he added. (NAN)

Following the recent promotion of Senior Officers in the Federal Road Safety Corps, the Kaduna command on Wednesday decorated four Deputy Corps Commanders (DCC) to Corps Commanders with their new rank.
The News Agency of Nigeria, reports that the new officers were decorated by the Zonal Commanding Officer, ACM Aliyu Datsama, alongside the Kaduna State Sector Commander, Hafiz Mohammed at the Zonal Command, Kaduna in line with the PTF Protocols on COVID-19.

Corps Commander Galadunci, who responded on behalf of the newly decorated Senior Officers, thanked the management of FRSC for their promotion and pledged their loyalty and dedication to saving lives and properties while carrying out services to the nation.
Lockdown: FRSC tasks personnel on enforcement
The Corp Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, (FRSC), Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, has tasked Commanding Officers to approach the enforcement of the Presidential directives with all vigour.
The Corps Public Education Officer, Mr Bisi Kazeem, disclosed this in a statement released to the News Agency of Nigeria, on Wednesday in Abuja.
NAN reports that President Muhammadu Buhari had approved the recommendations of the Presidential Task Force on the commencement of the Phase II of eased lockdown, spanning from June 2 to June 29.
Oyeyemi said the call was necessary in order to flatten the curve of the deadly pandemic in the country.
According to him, the directive is to further reiterate FRSC’s commitment towards sustaining existing collaborations with the national, subnational governments and key stakeholders in the fight against the Coronavirus (COVID-19)
He said it was to further ensure that the order on restrictions were diligently and effectively enforced with all sense of professionalism, civility and resilience.
He charged commanding officers to ensure adequate deployment of personnel on all routes.
“As the nation moves into the second phase of the eased lockdown regime, personnel must show diligence.
“They must ensure total enforcement of inter state travels, compulsory use of non medical facemasks and physical distancing, amongst motorists,” he said.
Oyeyemi decried the alarming upsurge in deaths and spread of the virus across the country, which he said had become a major priority operation of the corps.
He ordered commanding officers to ensure the full utilisation of the work force through effective deployment of personnel to arrest without hesitation.
“Any motorist who contravenes the national orders by overloading their vehicles, violating directives on inter state travels and compulsory use of facemasks would be sanctioned.
“Commanding Officers must ensure that the vehicles are impounded and the occupants handed over to the Police for prosecution in the Court of Law for contravening the Presidential Orders.
“Except the vehicles and the occupants were accredited essential workers with proof of identification, conveying agricultural produce, manufactured goods or petroleum products,”he said.
Oyeyemi called on the public to take advantage of FRSC’s numerous public relations platform to report any driver sighted violating the Presidential orders.
“The public is hereby directed to call Centre through the toll free line: 122 or the studio of the National Traffic Radio, 107.1 FM through the telephone lines: 08052998090 and 09067000015 for immediate action.
Lockdown ease: FRSC records 81 accidents, 40 deaths in Lagos, Ogun
Obayemi, an Assistant Corps Marshal, said that the crashes occurred in the four weeks of the Presidential lockdown ease in Lagos and Ogun.
“An analysis of the data of the Enforcement Operation carried out so far in the zone showed that we have a total of 81 road traffic crashes with only 24 fatal where 46 lives were lost.
“Forty-three of the crashes were serious which injured 154 people, while 14 were minor accidents,” he said.
According to him, the total vehicles stopped and returned to their originating places within the period were 2,872 while enforcing the Federal Government ban on inter-state travels.
The FRSC boss said that the zone arrested 770 vehicles for overloading as the most prevalent offence.
Obayemi, who urged motorists to drive with care, said that the lockdown ease should not be another death sentence to road users.
“As the flow of vehicles along major highways in the zone increases, road users should be conscious of safety and be very careful.
“This is important so that as they run away from Coronavirus, they won’t be killed through careless and reckless driving on the road.
“Many of these road traffic crashes recorded are avoidable,” he said.
President Buhari had on April 27, announced a “gradual easing” of COVID-19 lockdown in Lagos, Ogun and Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja, from May 4.
Lockdown ease: FRSC impounds 2,019 vehicles, records 33 crashes in Lagos
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Lagos State Command, said it impounded 2019 vehicles for various offences during the COVID-19 lockdown ease between May 4 and May 31.
The Sector Commander, Mr Hyginus Omeje, who disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Wednesday, said the corps would not tolerate disregard for road safety rules and regulations.
Omeje, who was recently promoted from Corps Commander to an Assistant Corps Marshal, said the corps recorded 33 road traffic crashes within the period.
He said 10 of the crashes were fatal, claiming 10 lives; 13 were serious, which injured 40 people, while 10 were minor accidents.
“Our operational activities in the sector and component commands from May 4 show that the corps booked and impounded a total of 2,019 vehicles and the most prevalent offence is overloading.
“The corps arrested a total of 666 vehicles for overloading in this period. We will continue to do our best to reduce road crashes and save lives,” Omeje said.
He said the corps would continue to ensure hitch-free traffic flow along major highways in the state.
According to him, motorists should be patient and obey traffic regulations on the highway.
FRSC promotes, decorates 3 senior officers
The Federal Road Safety Corps on Tuesday in Ilorin decorated three of its senior officers.
The Zonal Commanding Officer, Assistant Corps Marshal (ACM) Amauche Nwaka, while reading the address of the Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, said the promotion was well-deserved, based on hard work.
“As it is the culture of the Corps, the seasons of reward have never been delayed.
“This was achieved with the introduction of a novel process in promotion, in the form of virtual interview, rounding off the 2019 promotion.
“I congratulate all of you for your well-deserved promotion. You worked hard for it. You should be mindful that you will be met with several forms of new challenges.
“You should, therefore, be prepared for these challenges and opportunities; your ability to sustain your new positions would vindicate your elevation.
“Therefore, it is on this premise that you are charged to continue to work as we go forward, considering the numerous road safety management challenges facing our dear country.
“You are required to bring a new lease of life into the fight, by ensuring that all government policies at all levels are strictly adhered to.
“Above all, you must live by example; COVID-19 is real, keep safe,” he charged them.
NAN reports that the officers promoted and decorated included the Kogi Sector Commander, Corps Commander Omotosho Abe, elevated to the rank of ACM; Ekiti Sector Commander, Corps Commander Faustina Alegbe, promoted to the rank of ACM, and Deputy Corps Commander Joshua Adekanye, who got promoted to the rank of Corps Commander.

“We are happy because our ranks and responsibilities have changed. We appreciate God because we thought it was impossible.
“We appreciate the Corps Marshal and all our senior officers here present today. We say a big thank you,” he said.
NAN also reports that the occasion was graced by the Zonal Commanding Officer RS11

Boboye announced this in statement signed by Deputy Route Commander (DRC) (Media), Mr Festus Evarestus on Tuesday in Abuja.
Oyeyemi said that the decoration ceremony was as a fall out of the just concluded promotion exercise for senior officers.

“These are for those who have continued to strive to make FRSC a best global practice sustainable corporate organisation,’’ he said.
Oyeyemi congratulated the newly promoted officers for the deserved elevation and implored them to be happy and proud of their success.
He said that the promotion was an indication of their hard work, worthy of been rewarded.

46 die, 387 injured in accidents on Abeokuta-Lagos expressway in 6 years-FRSC
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) said on Monday that 46 persons died in road accidents at the Old Toll-Gate corridor on the Abeokuta-Lagos expressway between January 2014 and May 2020.
Oladele said that the deaths and injuries were recorded in 158 road traffic accidents during the period.
He attributed the accidents to black spots at the axis around the old toll gate on the expressway.
“The incessant road traffic accidents within the axis of the old toll gate at Ota, along the Abeokuta – Lagos expressway, is not only disturbing but worrisome.
“Within the same period, a total of 457 vehicles were involved in accidents. A total of 1, 381 persons were involved, while 387 injured victims were rescued from the road traffic crashes.
“From the FRSC’s routine road audits of the Lagos-Abeokuta corridor, a re-engineering of areas notorious for frequent crashes was recommended to eliminate the sloppy gradient, ” he said.
Oladele said that a comprehensive audit report was prepared by the FRSC and deposited with the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing, FERMA, the Ogun State Ministry of Works and Infrastructure and other relevant stakeholders.
This, he said, was to aid decisions on the suggestion that the slope in the area should be filled.
He also suggested the construction of an overhead interchange bridge that could allow vehicles in transit to connect the various exit points at the old toll gate intersection without interfering with traffic flow.
According to Oladele, all the market permits issued by the local authorities should be revoked, while markets located beside the intersection should be relocated.
“Illegal bus stops beside the road should be dismantled and standard bus stops erected far away where passengers cannot interfere with the flow of traffic,’’ he said.
He said the FRSC audit report partly informed the Federal Government’s decision to award contracts for the rehabilitation of the entire stretch of the corridor from Abeokuta to Lagos.
The sector commander noted that road accidents associated with that stretch of the corridor would be eliminated when the road project was completed.

Relocate Ota Toll-Gate motorpark, market, FRSC tells Ogun Govt
The Sango-Ota Unit of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Sunday appealed to Ogun Government to relocate motor park and market at Toll-Gate axis to reduce incessant road accidents in the area.
Ganiya said that the relocation of the park and the market became necessary because of the defectiveness and steepness of the road from Lagos, Sango-Ota and Ilo-Awera axis.
He said that the government should provide urgent palliative measure to stem the continuous loss of lives and property on the road.
According to him, most casualties of auto crashes at the toll gate axis are motorcycle riders and passersby.
“The temporarily motor parks and market at the Ota Toll-Gate axis should be relocated.
“Even, if there will be accidents, the impact will be minimal,” he said.
The unit Commander reiterated the corps’ commitment to continue to collaborate with other sister agencies to save lives and property on the roads.
NAN reports that on May 14, a truck lost control at the toll gate due to brake failure and killed two persons and injured seven.
Also, on May 21, two people died and six injured as a result of brake failure from a articulate trailer, while on May 23, a trailer had brake failure and two persons were killed and one injured.
